Ex-banker turned Meditation Teacher urges Wall Street to meditate. Rasanath Das, a former New York investment banker who gave it all up to become a monk, was recently spending his Sunday afternoons leading Occupy Wall Street protesters in meditation until police cleared their camp at Zuccotti Park this week.The 32-year-old monk isn’t sure now where his next session will be. He’ll keep following the protesters to offer meditation sessions, though, convinced they will only roll back the inequality they see around them if they find personal harmony deep inside.
“Anger won’t solve anything,” he told Reuters. “We have to work from the heart… there is so much distrust now.”
